Cat Books: Cat the Cat is all That!

By Bianca Schulze, The Children’s Book Review

There are many reasons why cats make great characters in kids’ books: They’re very familiar animals and notorious for being curious—not to mention mysterious, sly, and playful. They make lovable companions and their amazing ability for always landing on all four feet is a talent to marvel at and respect. And … you can’t beat the whole *nine lives* theory!

My favorite cat characters —of the moment—would have to be Mo Willems’ Cat the Cat and Sebastien Braun’s Meeow. Both of these cats star in picture book series that are extremely entertaining and a perfect choice for ages 0-5. From the language to the illustrations, the author-illustrators of these books really know their audience.
